I'm a cyclist approaching this junction. What on earth am I supposed to do?!

Saw this on a local Facebook site (not my photo). Bike hangar broken into in order to steal bikes. Denmark Road, Carshalton.

There's a marked parking space yet the driver still feels the need to use part of the cycleway for parking. Coundon cycleway.

Amsterdam will open its huge underwater bicycle parking at Centraal Station on 26 January: local TV station AT5 was allowed to take a look inside.

Cathedral Square in Worcester seems to have become a car park. Very handy for shops and restaurants.

A thank you to @CambsCC! Work to improve signs at a Histon Guided Busway crossing has also removed an unnecessary barrier, improving the accessibility through this link.

New steps at Skelton Grange road bridge demonstrate just how inaccessible they are for so many users. @HarworthGroup putting profit before people. Profits of 94M in 2021 . New dedicated walking & cycling bridge needed here. … [more]

A former patch of green used for parking behind a multi-storey car park. Lack of provision isn’t the problem, attitude is the problem.

We had it. We lost it.

The Lawrence Hill Lido is still open for business. @BristolCouncil, do we know when this will be fixed, please? Someone made a video for BBC Bristol: … [more]

Spent an interesting time this afternoon exploring - and measuring up - the "Dutch Roundabout" in Cambridge. The things one does for leisure after a PhD with a focus on accessibility… 😅 A very brief thread… cc @RantyHighwayman @camcycle … [more]

Vale, Dame Vivienne Westwood: designer, punk, cyclist. Her London office was close to mine so I’d see her all the time going by bike. I remember spotting her red hair from afar as she circled Berkeley Square, weaving around stationary … [more]

Letter through door today. Pedestrian and cycle bridge on Kingsbury Rd to be closed from 19 December. No indication when work to be done. Major active travel route. It's on CS1. @IslingtonBC @RowChampion Used to … [more]

@WRSalford Nothing new under the sun.

If you think LTNs are new in Salford, you'd be wrong This filter has happily been in place for a few decades, without much fanfare

A road notorious for traffic congestion is about to be widened. That means that a pub opened in 1784 is about to get flattened. So sad that this is how we treat our history.

I've heard all about it, but this evening was my first time riding the new separated bike lanes on St Kilda Rd! How good! You can ride side by side having a conversation, my favourite 😍 See also #187671 for video … [more]

Glad to see the cycle parking finally installed & being used outside Commute Cafe in St Ives ( a 'toastrack' so can be removed during the Michaelmas Fair)

Scenic it may be but this is unacceptable for a major cycle route. Please can @CambsCC grit the Coton Cyclepath to the West Cambridge site? ⁦@camcycle⁩

This level of car ownership would be pitiable but understandable in a public transport desert far from amenities. But this road is on three bus routes with several more via stops at the junction at the bottom, and it’s about ten minutes … [more]

@camcycle Loved my snowy commute this morning, though the bike was really difficult to manage on side roads. Riverside cycleway through Midsummer Common was gritted and somewhat ok to ride.

@camcycle The return of the dangerous bollard on the city side of the Milton bridge.

Right London. One good thing about the weather is it lets us see in *real life* how much space the traffic really uses. This is called a ‘Sneckdown’ Your mission - if you have a vantage point - is to send me all your Sneckdown photos for … [more]

It’s Friday afternoon, so who wouldn’t want a bit of informal side street zebra action from Cardiff (Llandaff North & Whitchurch)? Three locations, four crossings.

The National Cycle Network signs finally removed from Bridge Street in Peterborough. Sad to see but a positive message from @Sustrans_East. Let’s hope @PeterboroughCC listen and create a proper cycle route once and for all. … [more]

Cambridge Congestion, Wednesday morning And the next day:

This is the solution for where the cycle path meets the road. Precise location not yet known.

The new footbridge connecting Merrick Road to Park Ave in Southall was officially launched today! The next phase will see a lift installed, as well as even better public squares opened up at either end. Great to show @willnorman around … [more]

Holy moly the cycle roundabout is nearly complete Compled view see:

Another day, another 3 PCSOs are waiting to fine cyclists trying to filter safely, turning left from Hackney Road into the high-traffic sewer of Shoreditch High Street. If only there was the initiative for safe cycle infrastructure along … [more]

Cone on @BristolCouncil when will the Lawrence Hill Roundabout Underpasses be fixed? Been flooded for weeks now, is there an end in sight? @CllrJama @YassinMohamud20

@dakota158 @HounslowCycling @LBHF Further along near Chiswick Lane.

East Cambs District Council has approved a £250,000 grant to go towards a suitable crossing of Burwell Lode along the line of the National Cycle Route 11.

Cambridge Congestion, Saturday.

Hi @TrinCollCam your colleagues at @CambridgeSust have retrofitted the correct priority onto the side streets in Eddington. Please could you do the same for @CamSciencePark?

and Thursday..

1000 out of 1200 kids in this school in #Oulu, #Finland, arrive by #bicycle, even in winter. 100-150 walk, rest by ski, kicksleds and car. This day it was -17°C. @WCCCalgary2019 #WCC2019 #wintercycling Metsokangas … [more]

@David_McHardy @camcycle Same on Hills road this evening, all the way from Long road to Cherry Hinton road.

Elizabeth Way pedestrian paced the whole way, continuing onto East Rd. Elizabeth Way Bridge

Cambridge Congestion on my 9-930 commute. Arbury Road

Who on earth thought this was a good idea? Perhaps they’ll try putting one in the road next…

📌 Skehard Road access to Blackrock Greenway 📷 Photos sent to us by a member Water fountain is great addition along with the bicycle service stand.

Cardiff Council are trialling simple zebra crossings in a number of locations in Llandaff North and Whitchurch. This one has just been put in on the corner of Bishop's Rd and Merthyr Rd. Drivists on the local Facebooks are livid. … [more]

Sydney Harbour Bridge steps, morning of the Gong ride. This is why we need a bridge ramp without any further delay. After over 40 yrs campaigning, we’re really pleased with the current design 👉 and look forward to … [more]

East Road has some magic wands! Thanks @CambsCC for installing this trial😀 What do you think of the new pop-up cycle lanes? Do you feel safer on this section of the street? What other connections are needed? And where else would you love … [more]

Great campaign in London for COP27 from @WeAreCyclingUK "This machine fights climate change" Yup ... and fights toxic air, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, depression and so much more.

Broad Street in Oxford, now pedestrianised with car parking removed and seats added

Pleased to see this path between Exeter Canal and Marsh Barton has been resurfaced. Ok, you still have to mind your head in the tunnel under the railway line but it's a much nicer cycle/walk without the puddles and holes, someone's done a … [more]

One thing that is quite disappointing on the Garscube Rd project is the minor junction design, what is going on with these bell mouths, no sharp kerb / ramp up from either direction - really promotes fast driving without taking due care. … [more]

This is what Manchester City Council calls a cycle lane

I used to be afraid of riding on Evelyn Street. Now, thanks to the brand new Cycleway 4, it's a bliss. Thanks @TfL @willnorman @LewishamCouncil !

Sadly it was only temporary. They're back. 🙁 @camcycle

Castle Roofing North East casually parked way up a cycle lane #glasgow NG58KXV @YPLAC

Have a great Thursday! Let’s be bold and courageous like this cyclist in Cambridge transporting their cello - impressive! #thursdayvibes

How many vehicles can you see breaking how many rules? How are we going to get 8 to 80 year olds cycling in Edinburgh when the authorities fail to keep usable even the few segregated bike lanes we have? #queensferryroad … [more]

Fantastic to see the no entry except cycles on the waterfront in Ipswich. Most cycles used the road rather than the busy shared use so makes proper what people are doing anyway.

Edinburgh: we want more people to cycle! Also Edinburgh: here’s a new cycle lane on a main road!

@scottishcanals the approach to the canal at Stockingfield is blocked by a car

Why advertise that the access ramps are open onto towpath at Stockingfield then allow vans to park on them forcing people into deep mud?. And I walked round from the house the other evening with yard brush to clean glass off I mentioned … [more]

The most dangerous thing about cycling has to be an abrupt end to a cycle lane where you literally have nowhere to go except up on a high curb. This is on Thomas Hynes Road, Newcastle. Imagine if a car lane ended like that! @GalwayCycling … [more]

Big queue of people including bikes to get on the ferry at Felixstowe.

This @G4S van was abandoned in the centre of Glasgow this afternoon, completely blocking the main cycle route to the west and forcing people into oncoming traffic at a busy corner. @polscotrpu @MyGlasgowCC @GoBikeGlasgow @walkcyclescot … [more]

Phenomenal turnout this evening from those who want to keep our bus gate! This bus gate has been of massive benefit to Wapping. It must stay. The Mayor must listen to residents like he said he would.

Interesting repainting of give way markings in Oxford, reinforcing pedestrian priority in the revised Highway Code.

@citycyclists Here's another example, the Ely BP roundabout on the A10 north of Cambridge. This dangerous infrastructure was built recently. We pointed out that crossing two lanes of fast-moving traffic (x2) was dangerous. So did all three … [more]

C’mon then

GREAT new signage at the bottom of each of the ramps at the curly-wurly bridge in #Ladywell Fields 🚲 It is dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists to ride across this bridge.

Salford's first CYCLOPS is complete!

Good morning @sgloscouncil Please pass on my thanks to your highways team, for the recent works to permanently close my road to through traffic 🚧 Pedestrians, cyclists and even the occasional horse rider are all still welcome ⤵️ … [more]

This is OK right? 😁

Construction Traffic Beware Cyclists Going Straight Ahead.

Once again, luxury car, prat plate, and entitled parking. Apparently it's OK for him to park here because he can't get through the restrictions. 666S @YPLAC

National support for keeping cycling in Eastbourne town centre. One more day to register your complaint, as to the threat to active travel. Great article from @WeAreCyclingUK

My first ride over the new bridleway bridge between Longstanton & Bar Hill. Horse friendly rubber tiled deck & high parapets. Super wide. Gravel paths on approaches are ok for most bikes. @2whit2whoo Kudos to equestrian lobby for pushing … [more]

Women #Cyclists in Skirts fighting (literally) the good fight since 1899. Date and location not precise!

A year ago I went to see the residents of Harebell Close in #Peterborough about putting in some kissing gates where the cycle path meets the road 👍 This is about safety. Officers agreed with me and promised action. We have e messed around … [more]

I see the new cycle infrastructure on Lime Street is being well used. 🙄

We can’t make utility cycling a daily norm for more people, if we shove the cycle parking behind the building, away from the entrance and use it as storage for trolleys! 🫤

This is incredibly annoying on C4. The track bends into the side street where there's a signalised crossing, but traffic on the main road isn't held up by signals.

Carter Bridge #Cambridge 41.5°C just outside the entrance, peaking at 44°C at the summit. (Actually the measurement was 41.0°C just outside the entrance, not 41.5 as I said in the tweet.)

Nice bit of parking this morning forcing me to go head on with oncoming traffic or stop. I chose to stop, hence the photo. I guess this is a regular delivery so it would be good to hear your opinion please @CambsCops @camcycle @camcitco … [more]

Why, @CambsCC, does electric car infrastructure have to take up pavement rather than road space? And @alexandrabulat, how is this compatible with the Riverside promenade vision?

What a difference a protected #cyclepath makes - we love our #wands! Now everyone can #cycle safely #WarnefordLane #EastOxford #activetravel

Come on @RBKC - you are a huge gap in London’s safer cycle network. We can still see the shadow lines and bolt holes on Ken High St where the bike lane used to be. Let’s work together to put in a safe route before anyone else gets hurt. … [more]

Flagship cycle lane. Notice cyclist on the road to avoid the river. @MadCycleLaneMCR @ManCityCouncil

Oh good. Cobbles

Come right in and cycle into @Metro_Bank Cambridge. Ty. More trips by bike = less pollution (good for climate), more physical activity (better health) and greater visibility of more cyclists (safer travel for all) @camcycle … [more]

My husband (a hospital doctor) has just had his bike stolen from work - the second bike this month - the thieves cut through the U frame it was locked to. How are we in a position that this is ok and happens so frequently? @CycleSheffield … [more]

The people that put a pole in the middle of this Adelaide bike path will do a ‘post project review just to see what we could have done better’. Should be a quick meeting. Does anyone have any examples of stuff ups sillier than this? Please … [more]

Downtown Smiths Falls, Ontario, pop 9,000. You don’t need to be a big city to have a complete street!

I’ll just be two minutes isn’t going work for this obstruction… 🤨

Most disappointed to see these new barriers, which have been installed in the past few weeks on Via Urbis Romanae, Colchester. A complaint is winging way to @essexhighways and the location will be added to our barriers map. What a waste of … [more]

My latest @InTandemTshirts blog post is a review of the new (red!!!) cycle tracks on Liverpool Street, Salford which I think are pretty good! I'd love to hear people's views on it, particularly if you've ridden it! … [more]

Someone in my town has crocheted special Queen’s Jubilee bollard sleeves which may be the most brilliantly British thing I have ever seen.

Thank you to everyone who's made this happen. They're looking beautiful. We love it. I hope we can do more around Sheffield to make streets for walking and cycling @olivercoppard @min_esh @RuthMilsom

The tweet below is good, but this picture is better. Normal clothes, no helmets...

Excellent ride this year. Perfect weather and perfect company. No mechanicals either! Here's a picture from the Ely start, 10am.
